Amy Preiss Obituary
AMY PREISS Amy B. Preiss, 39, passed away, with her family by her side, Friday, May 8, 2009. Amy was born in Johnson City, N.Y., Aug. 14, 1969. A graduate of the University of Arizona with a bachelor's degree in accounting, Amy moved to Las Vegas in 1992 to pursue her career as a CPA. After several years with the accounting firm Arthur Andersen LLP, Amy began working at Circus Circus Enterprises, ultimately becoming an assistant vice president of corporate accounting for the MGM-Mirage Corporation. Amy and her husband, of almost 10 years, Eric Preiss, met while working together as accountants at Arther Andersen. Exceptionally intelligent, Amy loved puzzles and was a voracious reader. She was an advocate for animals and volunteered her time to help those in need. Amy is survived by her beloved and devoted husband, Eric; her father and mother, Alan and Betty Patterson; sister, Lori and brother-in-law, Dave Yandell, and their beautiful children, Amanda, Shawnna, Tessa and Matt Yandell, with whom Amy was incredibly close; along with Eric's father and mother, Peter and Joyce Preiss; sister, Sheri Thome; brother-in-law, Mark Thome; and nephew, Max Schwartz. There will be a memorial service at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 16, at Palm Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Ave. The family requests donations, in lieu of flowers, to the Best Friends Animal Society, a non-profit organization that helps animals in need.
